Paranormal Activity 4

Paranormal Activity 4

To celebrate the Halloween season I went to see Paranormal Activity 4. Unfortunately I think that the creators of this particular franchise might have been better off stopping at the end of the trilogy. I personally really like films that are creepy and psychologically scary, much more than ones that are gory. I’m not a slash and gash horror fan at all. With that said, I understand that this type of horror film need to build up the tension from normal everyday life to creepy over the course of the film. Although Paranormal Activity 4 did a reasonable job during the middle of the film where you find yourself straining to see what is happening in the living room through the parade of tracking lights that are raining down on the room. The characters that behave completely contrary to what any real people would do, pull you away from the story in the latter part of the film, and the third act rush made the film feel incredibly out of balance. When you add an ending that looks like something out of a bad zombie flick, instead of one with a coven of witches on the loose, and you have a recipe for a poorly handled Paranormal Activity 4 film. The original film in the Paranormal Activity series was part of the ultracheap DIY films that was picked up by a major studio, which remade the final scene of the film to add the wow factor. Following its success, the franchise did passably well with their second film and surprised many people with the third film garnering a 68%...
The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises

I will admit that I am a fan of the comic book and the movies that come from them. Yes, there have been some bad films made from comics, but there have also been some great films that originated from comic books. The best of class has to go to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, which concludes with The Dark Knight Rises. The screenplay was written by Christopher Nolan’s brother, Jonathan Nolan and then tweaked by Christopher into it’s final form. As Jonathan noted in the production notes of The Prestige,”…he’s somehow able to look at my ideas and flip them around in a way that’s just a little bit more twisted and interesting. It’s great to be able to work with him like that.” If that’s how they work together than Jonathan gave Christopher a great basis to tweak in this trilogy. Assembling a heavy hitting, Oscar-winning crew once again, Christopher Nolan worked with cinematographer Wally Pfister, effects masters Paul Franklin and Chris Corbould, and composer Hans Zimmer, and the list of stars isn’t a skimpy one either: Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gorden-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, and of course, Christian Bale. Who wouldn’t be looking forward to this film? Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister give their films such a unique look that it’s hard to imagine one working without the other, and that’s especially the case in this Dark Knight trilogy. Every screen is so impeccably crafted that you are totally immersed in their world. Along with The Dark Knight Rising in part three of the series, we also see the rise of Robin...

Source Code

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in Source Code as Captain Colter Stevens with Michelle Monaghan as Christina Warren (the girl he wants to save) and Vera Farmigad as Goodwin, his liaison during the mission. If you were to cross the TV series Seven Days with the film Groundhog Day, you have an approximation of the upcoming film, with a twist here and there.
